's a landslide. you talk about the gallup number, today the cbs/"new york times" numbers came out. three swing states, obama leads by one. in ohio, he leads by five. in virginia, he leads by two. this momentum by romney is all concocted and the press fell for it. dais i didn't call on you but you -- >> dana: i didn't call on you but you went anyway so i'll take the last word. one poll that came out yesterday that was interest, the national public radio teamed up resurgent republic to talk about the independent voters. if we go back eight months ago on the program to say what will matter in the election, independent voters. democrats vote for democrats. republicans vote for republicans. we have a group. gallop said 40% of the people identify independents now. there is an 8-point swing for independents in favor of romney. it happened right after the first debate if denver. 51-39%. they will have more detail out of the npr public tomorrow. it can tell you this. guess what? tomorrow in his column, karl rove in the "wall street journal" column, he will make prediction on the election turn-out. >> b

document from august. this is breaking about all of this, cbs told is moving this as well. that the security group not called in action. >> we seem to get to the point where everybody is paying attention to the story. a big story from person policy magazine. kind of story to make those inside the beltway to take notice. documents found on the ground of the consulate on octobe october 26, seven weeks after the attack described the letters in which the u.s. ambassador and others in the consulate were asking for additional security because they had seen a police officer who is charged with guarding the compound casing the compound instead. sent letters to the libyan officials, made requests to american officials asking for security. this is a big deal story, because it took -- why in the world would they be able to find these documents on the floor of the consulate. after the f.b.i. has done its investigation. >> bret: now, as you know, we spend a lot of time putting the timelines together, doing the hours. and trying to tell people what happened in order. for five days befor
the race is a virtual tie. danielle noddingham, cbs news, the white house. >> today, the new york city mayor in the thick of the storm recovery, endorsed president obama, pointing to the president's leadership on climate change. >>> well, a 4-year-old little girl in colorado, so tired of hearing about this election, that it actually drove her to tears. they were listening on tuesday on their way to the grocery store when the little girl started to tear up. here's what she said when the mom said why are you crying? >> i'm tired. i'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? oh, it will be over soon, okay? the election will be over soon, okay? >> yay. >> heck, i feel like crying too. they said sorry we made you cry about barack obama and mitt romney. the note went on to say that we must confess that the campaign has gone long enough for us too. keep telling ourselves only a few more days. only a few more days. only a few more days. >> let's be real if they are running for president and they had their way, they are probably tired of hearing these ads too. >> yeah
. so abc, cbs, nbc, fox, univision -- liz: how much? >> 98 bucks. liz: i can get that with rabbit ears for my television. >> that's true, so either rabbit ears you can put on your television or connect it to your cable connection from the wall and then what's exciting about this box, it has an unlimited dvr so you can record as many shows as you like and we actually up load them to the cloud, rather than store them on the device. which means you can record as much as you like and watch it from any device. liz: let's talk about the holiday promotion. what do you get, unlimited dvr capability? >> yes. it's a lot of free. then for so much a month, you can record as much as you like and watch from anywhere. we think it is like changing from film camera to digital camera. liz: can i get every single cable channel? >> no, you can get only the basic cable channels for now until we partner with the cable companies. >> liz: what are you hearing from the cable companies? >> we think this device is friendly to the cable industry. liz: do you think or do they think? >> it is a device that uses a l
ohio. it runs just exactly counter to the quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll. >> bill: okay, now, when these votes are excuse me, when these votes are cast in states before election day, they are immediately cointed, right? are they immediately counted? >> no. they are generally put aside. what they do is they catalog who has cast the early ballot. >> so they know who is voting. now, on a -- just on a toe tattle basis in ohio. are more -- have more republicans voted than democrats in ohio or is it just a percentage that's higher? >> no, no. it's just -- there are more democrats who voted than republicans. but four years ago the democrats had a huge massive in the early vote. you know as i showed in those numbers, there are a lot more republicans voting than voted four years ago and a lot fewer democrats. so there is a great -- there is parody between the two parties. >> bill: why do you think if the polls say ohio is so close that more democrats voted ahead of time than republicans? >> well, traditionally democrats do a better job of turning out certain elements of their coalitio
romney when it comes to independent voters by 12 points and a cbs "new york times" poll that reflects the same numbers. a deficit for the president when it comes to independent voters. how does this work? michael barone is the senior political analyst and fox news contributor. i guess the theory is the republicans and democrats will be split and the independents will make the difference? and romney is winning with them? >> that's the theory. 2008 democratic party identifier outnumbered republicans 32 points. 2010 party identification was even. that's from exit poll data. if the parties are even in strength as when they are in 2004 and the 2010 off-year election then the independents are going to swing it because party identifier these days are strong partisans. you are getting 90-plus percentage of democrats for obama and 90% republicans voting for romney. weir we'll see something other than a 1% race in the presidential contest. megyn: if that's true why don't we see bigger numbers for mitt romney in states like ohio and iowa and these other critical states that may be required for h
times, cbs news poll shows a president with a 5 point lead in ohio. karl rove questions the validity of that particular poll. he says, quote, that survey gives democrats a plus 8 advantage in turnout. the same advantage democrats had in 2008. that assumption, writes karl rove, is to put it gently, absurd. joining us from the weekly starred, kelly jane, is karl rove on to something, do you think? >> possibly. you know, i have to admit i have trouble understanding this obsession that pollsters and pundits have with the numbers and kind of reminds me when i was a kid and couldn't wait until december 25th to see what i got for christmas and wrapped a little of the gift. nobody wants to wait a week and everybody has to know what's going on now. stuart: if you look at things now. the romney camp have to admit the momentum they the got falling the debates has stalled and they're actually in a dead heat. my point is, the momentum has stalled and that has to worry them. >> you're right, it's a dead heat and nobody can deny at that despite the fact that people on both sides, obama campaign peo
you're frustrated to watch the daily news. will broadcast medium abc, cbs, nbc, cnn, fox, any thing with 9/11 or terrorism always guilty before you are proven innocent and rush to judgment. the reporting is not in depth. the problem media faces with the original foreign correspondent. they will living there they come back with the real story. with the arabs spring it was the beginning of the revolution now it was a different story because now we use youtube or bad quality television. but it depends. you can still read fantastic stories and use the terrible reporting on stations like fox news. >> how would arab media of fact -- defect or handle the matters in media? i suspect americans to enjoy positioning the and it was before. why is that? the palestinian issue the front pages was day touching point* because of the support for israel so i see the criticism. president obama also helped the american administration in. something interesting, burning the american flag, you could see that in syria. or the chinese flags. have the iranians, russians, now being burned regular the. governme
% obama, 45% rrm. virginia, 49% obama, 47% rrm. that is from the cbs quinnipiac poll. let's start with you on this, congressman. the good news is that the president's lead is shrinking. we've seen it go down dramatically in those battleground states. the bad news, though, is that he is ahead. even if it's a squeaker. >> i think there are a couple of things to think about on this. number one, volunteers who are knocking on doors of those who have not voted yet come back with a very different message than what you're getting in the polls. for the president, the fact that there are still undecideds and the independents seem to be breaking toward mitt romney, that is not good news for him. it shows the momentum is definitely with mitt romney. people want change. they want action on day one. and they've been presented a very clear choice between the president and mitt romney. >> do you have any concern that in a state like yours and states further south they'll go for romney by these overwhelming margin margins, are you concerned that obama will win the popular vote, romney will win the elector
